- You never aw the necessity for great weight in a horse-drawn
carnage, It would be a loa"d on the horse and would serve no
practical purpose. Excessive weight in a carriage is just as sen
sible as in an automobile.
An automobile is necessarily heavier than a carriage, but only
enough heavier to take care ot the fact that it and the power
plant are self-contained. The lighter an automobile is the bet
ter it will stand up and the easier it handles. Excessive weight
it a weakness. It racks the vehicle, and makes unreasonable
operating and repair expense.

NEW YORK, Feb. 1. The English rac

country because of the large number of

has addressed a letter to th sporting edi
tor Of The Bee, r. which he Says he Is nt
msnager of Youslff Mahmout. the big Turk,
who Is to wrestle Raoul de Rouen, the gi
gantic Frenchman, at theAudltorlum Fri
day night. Also he denies that Jess West
ergaard was crowded out after accepting
the challenge sent by the Turk to the win
ner of the Westergaard-de Rouen match.
Mr. Kennedy writes at much length and
goes Into detail in order to establish his
statement that he has "nothing to do with
Mahmout." He says Joe Coffey, president
and matchmaker for the Empire Athletic
club of Chicago Is the Turk'a manager and
that all engagements tor the Turk must be
made through Coffey. He said the present
engegament, the match of Friday night,
was made by Manager Glllan cf the Audi
torium, with Coffey In Chicago after
three-fourths" of a day was spent In tha
Mr. Glllan, . who returned Monday from
Chicago, confirmed this statement.
As to Jess Westergaard having been
crowded out, Kennedy says: ,
"Westergaard was offered the match, but
declined It because he didn't feel, any too
well at the time. I will make you a pres
ent of SJ00 If you can get Westergaard In
the ring with Mahmout."
Kennedy Insists that the Frenchman and
the Turk are two of the best men In tho
world and that the winner of Friday night's
match will try for a contest with Gotch.
Referring to Mahmout's challenge of the
winner of the Westergaard-de Rouen match
In Omaha announced at the ringside. Ken
nedy says: "This man Mahmout, has two
managers and one of them asked me to
aske the winner of the Westergaard-de
Rouen match to meet Mahmout and I did
so, and when one manager told tho oflier
what he had asked me to do the reply he
got was all business through manager A,
so this Is the telegram that was sent.
Westergaard Is not within reach Just
now, but Mr. Glllan confirms what Ken
nedy says as to Jess not wanting to meet
the Turk for a while.
Jes Says Barns la Better.
Westergaard made thes remark after his
match with the Frenchman that he beileved
Farmer Burns, In his best trim, could beat
either do Raoul or Mahmout, though he did
not try to say that both these giants were
not good men. Their tremendous weight
and strngth give them an advantage
which is hard for a man like Burns to
overcome. Burns weighs 170, wnne me
Turk weighs 198 and the Frenchman 240.
Conceding that the Farmer probably knows
mora about the game than either of these
men ever will, his age 8 oou pled with his
light weight, would placo him at a great
disadvantage against either one. Yet all
these things considered, the popular feeling
In Omaha Is that the old man would dis
pose of de Rouel without serious dlfflcutly,
and beat Mahmout after a hard struggle
But Burns doesn't want to do such heavy
worlt for a while. He ssld some weens ago
though with no referennce specially to
either of these fellows, that while he still
felt good for several years of hard work
he preferred to let, the weighty chaps alone,
far oven -though not as good wrestlers as
soma lighter men, working against them
was wearing and tearing on him and he
did not want to undertake It unless neces
Mr. Kennedy's views to the contrary not
withstanding, there is still ample belief In
Omaha that Jess Westergaard Is a better
wrestler than the Frenchman and would
have beaten him In their match had It
gone to the finish.
From Indications It appears that a large
crowd will turn out Friday night to see
the two big fellows go It. Manager Glllan
says the aeat sale Is going on rapidly al
ready. There Is no reaso nwhy these men
should not put up one of the best matches
ever seen at the Aurltorlum.

CONNELL WRITES TO SEARS
Another Shot in the Epistolary Duel
DUTY OF COURT AND COUNSEL
Conduct Dnrlna; the Tendency of tbe
Case Analysed by tse Attorney
Who Successfully . Defended
OMAHA, Feb. l.-TO the Editor of The
Bee: The letter of Judge Sears in his
attempted defense of .Lawyer Daniel, Canon
Bell and Dean Beecher, demonstrates what
knew at the outset, that In the trial
of the Wetmore case I -was up agajnst a
pretty hard combination. If on that trial
In addressing Judge Bears, I had only em
ployed the words once addressed to the
fair Portia during her brief career as a
trial judge and had exclaimed "A Daniel
coma to judgment. Yea, a Daniel! O wise
Judge, how I do honor thee!" and had
lauded the preachera to the skies in place
of criticising their efforts to outdo Sher
lock Holmes, I would have been a good
citizen and a worthy member of the
legal profession in place if a target for
abuse and denunciation.
But, what would have become of my
clientT He probably, by this time, regard
less of his guilt or Innocence would have
been on his way to Lincoln.. I had a
duty to perform as well as the court and
that was to use all honorable means at
my command In the defense of my client.
This I did and nothing more. My criticism
of witnesses -waa Justified, by the record
they made. My objections to the course
taken by Judge Sears , had justice and
liberty for their basis.
And, right here is to be found tho Irri
tating sand-burr that caused Judge Sears
to come down from the Judicial bench and
recklessly rush Into public print as the
self constituted defender of his former
conferees. It was shown on the cross-
examination of Canon Bell that aecret
conferencea with Judge Sears had been had,
having for their purpose the indic'ment
and convlctment of Wetmore and that
Judge Bears who later on waa to hold the
scales of justice between the state and
the defendant had advised both Canon Bell
and Dean Beecher that the alleged con
fession of Wetmore in the Gardner Mem
orial Parish house was proper to be revealed.
What of the Defendant.
Under these conditions what show had the
defendant for his liberty? Even the ques
tion of the admissibility of testimony had
been determined in advance of the trial and
the attorneys for the defendant were fore
closed1 before their objections could be
made. Like the horse that was beaten in
the race before he started, they could not
possibly, win. It certainly was bad enough
for the preachers to abandon their sacred
railing and in the Interest of pretended re
form become sleuths in the Third ward. In
their case, however, the end might Justify
the means. But who can justify the course
ot a trial Judge who becomes both accuser
and prosecutor and commits himself in ad
vance to the decision of questions which
must ultimately arise upon the trial?
When this waa ahown by the cross-examination
of Canon Bell, Judge Bears un
dertook to Justify his action by a statement.
To this I objected on the ground that the
defendant was not present at these confer
ences and that if the Judge was to give his
eraion ot the affair it should be by sworn
testimony upon the witness stand, with the
right on our part of cross-examination.
The judge then announced he would make
hla statement In some other way at aome
other time. Tills episode in the trial was
i no of the Irritating aandbura to disturbing
to juUiciaJ equanimity.
Judge Sears In Ills letter says he adds
his word to the Interest of good ritisenshlp
becuuse the mouths of the witnesses ara
closed. Who closed them? Why are they
closed? They certainly were not- closed
when trying to swear Wetmore into the
penitentiary. The idea thut lawyer Dan
iel's mouth la closed. ' so that ha cannot
make defense for himself. Wtiy, even
Dsaa Ottchrr b his pulpit, ana ss tnusx
who have read the newspapers know, he
already has ued it in his own vindication.
No, the letter of Judge Senrs was not
written In the Interest of these witnesses.
It was wrKten because he, as accuser,
prosecutor and trial Judge, was not spared
on the Wetmore trial any mote than Canon
Bell. Ho fh-st scored the Jury. He then
jumps on me. But, In doing thli. he for
gets that he no longer occupies the pro
tected position of Judge, who, like the
king, "can do no wrong." By rushing into
print he becomes plain Mr. Sears from
Tekamah. In repelling his assaults I do
not even unve lo refer to him aa "Your
honor." This Is certainly a relief. When
in his court I will endeavor, as I always
have, to show for him the respect his Judi
cial position entitlea him to receive. But,
when off the bench,-. I will treat him as
he deserves. If he wants to go into a re
cital or comparison ot recctds, I will gladly
Power of the Court.
Cne thing, however, I wish to say at this
time, and that is tltt his reference to re
moving me from the Wetmore Cane or any
othur cases strikes no terror to my soul.
I recognize that a Judge on the bench for
the time being has power equal to that of
the czar of Russia and that such power
can be as arbitrarily exercised as hy that
despot. But, Judge Soars shoull know
that he has- uo. legal right to remove 01
displace any attorney in the trial of any
case. It may be such is his idea until r
the law In Burt county, but it la not tlie
law bb unanimously declared by the highest
courts of the land. A defendant, tindeu the
constitution, has tho, right to a Jury trial
and to make de fense by counsel of his own
selection. The tight of an attorney to ap
pear In '.he trial of any case Is a property
right that cannot be taken from him except
upon proper charges and a regulur trial. If
Judge Seara can catch me for contempt
he Is welcome to do so. When I am In his
court, however, I will try and keep out of
reach of the grappling hooks.
Some years ago a distinguished attorney,
while making his argument, was harshly
called down by an arbitrary trial Judge
with the query, "Are you trying, Mr.
Choate, to show contempt for the court?"
"No, your honor," replied that dlstin-
r : '
guished barrister, "I am doing the boat I
can to conceal my contempt for the court."
This precedent, when necessity requires,
I will always try and follow. I am thank
ful, however, that the occasion for doing so
Is rare. For more than twenty-five years
I have been engaged In the trial of cases.
Never , but once have I been charged with
contempt and even this charge was held
insufficient by the supreme court. As a
rule, the Douglas county bar has been
greatly favored with able and reasonable
judges. In the list headed by Judge Lake,
followed by such eminent lawyers as Wake
lay, Doane and Savage, we can Include the
pt-esent Incumbents, Kennedy, Redlck'. Es
telle, Day and Troup. One other thing t
am also thankful for and that is neither
Judge Sears or any one else has ever
charged nre with Incompetency or disloy
alty to my client. W. J. CONNELL.
PRESIDENT WRITES GILLETT
Buajffestloiia of Executive Will Be
Embodied In California Allen
SACRAMENTO, Cal. Feb. 1. Governor
rtillt'tt made public tonight the text of a
letter received today from President Roose
velt with regard to anti-Japanese legisla
tion now pending Iri tho California legisla
ture. President Roosevelt quotes from a
letter from former Secretary of State Root
to Governor Gtllett, and from a memo
randum, pointing out that Mr. Root saw
no objection to a law which treated all
aliens alike, but that to avoid conflict with
the constitution such statute should con
tain an expressed provision excepting from
Its operations any rights secured by treaty
between the United States and foreign na
tions. Mr. Roosevelt says that this view
has his cordial endorsement.
Definite action Will be taken during the
present week, It Is said, on two Important
subjects of attention In the California leg
islature race-track gambling and the re
striction of Japanese. In this state the law
against turf gambling, modeled after the
Hughes law in New York, which has al
ready passed the assembly, will be made a
special order of business for Tuesday. Sen
ator George S. Walker, one of the sponsors
for the measure, asserts that not more than
five senatora will vote against it.
A. M. Drew's anti-alU-n land Irill, us
amended by hlmto VohfurnTto. the wishes
of President Roosevelt, will he favorably
reported by the conimlttoc oik Judiciary,
and action may he taken on it Tuesday,
for which time It probably will be made
a special order of business. This bill is
almost an exact duplicate of the Oklahoma
law. It doea not specify that aliens must
become citizens' of the ' V'nlted Slates In
order to retain land or to purchase land.
The bills introduced hy Grove L. JohriBnn
early In the session, to prohibit Hlleim from
being members of boards of directors and
segregating Japanese In public schools, and
segregating all undesirable aliens In resi
dential districts, will lie taken up as a spe
cial order of business on Wednesday.

The combination 'of healthful vegetable ingredients of which S. S. S. ia

the only hope of a successful cure; and it should be a medicine that not only
cleanses the circulation, but one that at the same time restores the blood to
its normal, rich, nutritive condition. S. S. S. is lust such a remedy. It is
made entirely of healing, cleansing vegetable properties, extracted from na
ture's roots, herbs and barks of the forest and fields. It has long been
recognized as the greatest of all blood purifiers, possessing the qualities
necessary to remove everv impurity in the blood. When S. S. S. has purified
the circulation, and strengthened and enriched it, sores and ulcers heal read
